In Tuesday´s 100m hurdles heats, several our athletes were in the action. Canadian Michelle Harrison ran a time of 12.88 and qualified for the semifinals. So did local hero Luca Kozák. Hungarian clocked a new season best of 12.71 and took a big Q. The heats had an unfortunate outcome for the rising star Viktória Forster of Slovakia. After a rocket start, she stumbled at the first hurdle. Despite the solid form in the rest of the race, she could not re-gain the position.
In the women´s 400m hurdles semifinals, Jessie Knight ran 54.51 and took 12th place overall.
Grenadian Kirani James covered the lap in 44.58 and made it to his sixth World Championships 400m final!
